One of (usually) four vertical supports of a piece of furniture shaped in two curves: the upper arc is convex, while lower is concave. The upper curve always bows outward, while the lower curve bows inward. This design was used by the ancient Chinese and Greeks, but emerged in Europe in the very early 18th century. Nothing symbolises 18th century furniture more than the cabriole leg.
Here are a handful of furniture sets with Cabriole Legs. For more, visit our Dining Room Furniture page.
